no other weather

     no other weather

raining
as if
there had
never been
any other kind
of weather
just this rain
settled in on
the volcanic hill
cloud right down
to the foot
as if it had rained
for a million years
before there
was grass there
ever was a hill
rain falling
out of the sky
since the sky’s
first making
falling since
that first
ever
dawn
brimming
in grey
